Advantage Arsenal in race for Russian playmaker

The Gunners are well-known across Europe for their exciting brand of football, even if they do try to pass the ball into the net sometimes. It appears that their reputation has preceded them in the case of Andrei Arshavin and his agent, the latter of whom has hinted that Arsenal’s style of play would suit the Russian forward as he seeks a move away from Zenit.

The Daily Telegraph report that Dennis Lachter has given every Gooner a reason to be cheerful on a Monday morning.

Arshavin’s agent, Dennis Lachter said: “The stable situation in the club and the influence of Arsene Wenger to Arsenal to English football is huge. I think this is an advantage.

“If Arsenal go for Arshavin it could be really good for both parties. Arsenal is a very young team and Arshavin is 27. There’s something about combining young and older players, they propagate attacking football.”

Well, well, well. These quotes look very encouraging as far as Arsenal are concerned, maybe it’s not always the richest club that wins the race to sign a player. It would be great to see Arshavin line up alongside Cesc Fabregas next season, what a central midfield pairing that would be. Will this dream become a reality?
